Maryland Crab Cakes

The best crab cakes in the world

2011-09-16..-57_962.jpg2011-09-16..-57_714.jpgEvery day is filled with inspections then back to the RV to write the claims up. I’m still way behind and nearly every day the big boss calls; how many inspections are set, how many claims without inspections. Now he admitted that it is the end of the month and they have numbers that they need to reach. It came back to me that bit from when I did work for the company in L.A. so long ago. Well I’ll close what I can.

So we had a claim why over on the east bay, actually a couple so this was the last one for the day. We got to the claim and it was for a really ratty carport and a mobile home on the property. We were nice, I mean why not be nice, people have what they have but it wasn’t the nice place with nice cars.

So after the claim is all over and we had gotten into our truck, the lady comes over and asked if we were hungry for lunch and what we were going to do. I said that we were hungry but didn’t know if any restaurants were around. She directed us to one on the water, said that it was a favorite and we should try it.

We followed the road around thru what is called the blackwaters. Now we know why they are called the blackwaters; the water is dark and it stinks. I don’t think I’d want to walk thru this muck. The area reminds me of the bayous around the New Orleans area but it is just a little different grass. We drove around the bay and finally came upon the place she told us about, “Old Salty’s” a fish restaurant in a nearby town, Fishing Creek, MD.

What a surprise!!! Old Salty’s has possibly the best crab cake in the world. I’d loved the crab cakes in VA but this had nice big pieces of lump crabs and no wheat or cracker fillers. OMG. I ordered the dinner with 2 crab cakes and ate them both, didn’t bother with the veges or sweet potato sides. I brought the sides’ home for breakfast.
